Caturday Art: Wintry Paisley

This week for Athena's Caturday Art blog hop, old SoLT decided to try something wintry. Okay, in reality she had no plan at all; instead she sat at the computer wondering what she could do, and she basically lucked in to this effect by trying a lot of different things in PicMonkey.

She started with a photo of Real Cat Paisley that is out of focus and not something she would normally put on the blog. She cropped the original image in PicMonkey and then bumped the sharpness and clarity way up. Then she applied a Sketch effect, after which she went to Colors and played with the saturation and temperature until she had a greenish-bluish color that she liked. A Frost filter added the cooling effect around the edges, and a photo corner frame finished it off.

Here's the orginal:


  1. Cold picture, but warm effect :) Pawkisses for a Happy Caturday :) <3

  2. It turned out gorgeous! I love throwing everything but the kitchen sink at a picture and seeing what happens :)
